Now that we have our ingredients ready, let’s get started with this delicious Gluten-Free Almond Honey Slice recipe. To ensure perfect results, follow the instructions below:

Step 1: Prepare the Base

First things first, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Next, melt 115 grams of butter and set it aside to cool. Then, in a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of blanched almond flour, ¼ cup of honey, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Add in the cooled melted butter to this dry mixture and mix well until the dough is formed. Press the mixture into a 9×13 inch slice pan lined with baking paper and bake for 12 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step 2: Prepare the Honey Almond Topping

Meanwhile, add 100 grams of melted butter in a mixing bowl along with 1/3 cup honey and mix well. Add in 3 cups of almond meal, two large eggs, ½ teaspoon of baking soda, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Mix all the ingredients together until combined.

Step 3: Combine and Bake

Pour the mixture gently over the pre-baked almond base and spread it evenly. Sprinkle some flaked almonds on top for added texture and crunch. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Step 4: Optional Drizzle

Once baked, remove from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes. While it’s cooling down, you can make an optional drizzle by melting together 2 tablespoons of butter and ¼ cup of honey in a small saucepan over low heat until combined. Drizzle it over the slice for extra sweetness and honey goodness.

Step 5: Chill and Enjoy!

Now it’s time to chill the slice in the fridge for at least 20 minutes until it’s nice and firm. Once chilled, slice it into portion-sized servings and indulge in the sweetness of honey paired with the nuttiness of almonds. It’s perfect for an afternoon tea treat or even as a dessert.

Substitutions and Variations

There are plenty of ways to get creative with this almond honey slice recipe!

If you prefer a different type of sweetener, such as maple syrup or agave nectar, you can easily substitute the honey for your preferred choice. However, keep in mind that using a liquid sweetener will influence the texture of the slice – it may become too moist and sticky.

For those who are dairy-free or vegan, you can easily swap out the butter for a non-dairy alternative like coconut oil. Simply melt the coconut oil down to a liquid state and follow the recipe as directed.

If gluten-free flours aren’t available in your area, almond meal can be used instead of almond flour. Almond meal contains more almond skins than almond flour, resulting in a darker color and nuttier flavor, but it will still create delicious results.

If you want to give the almond honey slice an extra crunch or even more almond flavor, try adding slivered almonds on top before baking or mixing in chopped walnuts with the batter.

Lastly, if you fancy experimenting with different toppings on this classic honey almond slice recipe, add some fresh raspberries or drizzle melted dark chocolate over the top for an indulgent twist.

Serving and Pairing

Creating a delicious honey almond slice can be a bit tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing. As someone who has spent years perfecting this recipe and trying out different techniques, I have some tips that will help ensure the best possible results every time.

First of all, make sure to use high-quality ingredients. The honey and almond flavors are the stars of this dish, so it’s essential to use sweet and flavorful honey as well as fresh ground almonds. For the best results, use raw organic honey and blanch your almonds yourself rather than buying pre-ground almond flour.

Another crucial tip is to pay attention to measurements. This recipe requires precise measurements for maximum flavor and texture. The cup sizes must be accurate, and ingredients such as sugar should be firmly packed or leveled off with a knife.

When making your batter, take care not to overmix the ingredients. Overmixing leads to tough baked goods in gluten-free recipes. Mix just enough to combine everything evenly, but no more.

For an extra special touch, try adding some flaked almonds or slivered almonds on top of your slice before baking. This will give a lovely crunchy texture and enhance the nutty flavor.

Finally, consider using orange blossom honey instead of classic honey. Alternatively, you can add a drop or two of orange essence while melting down the honey for an intense aroma.

By following these tips, you’ll create the perfect honey almond slice – crunchy golden flaked crust, sweetness from honey crunch paired with nuttiness from almond flour shortbread base – that everyone will love!

Bottom Line

With its delicious combination of honey and almond flavors, this almond honey slice is sure to satisfy your craving for a sweet treat without any guilt. This recipe has several variations that you can try to suit your taste preferences, from using coconut flour to making a caramel version with slivered almonds on top.
